How beneficial is a BoatUS membership for sailors? Well, we found out just how valuable a service that is while sailing in the Chesapeake Bay with our friends on their catamaran. We were nearing the Bay Bridge, motoring back to Annapolis (there was no wind) when suddenly both his engines failed. After much cursing, diagnostics and antics, we gave up.
Bob had no way to get the catamaran back to a safe harbor and was slowly drifting towards the Bay bridge. We maneuvered him to a safe spot, threw down the anchor and called his TowboatUS Service. It was as easy as that! They were there within the hour and towed him safely back to Annapolis. We were sold and decided to become members.
